When the Navi Mumbai constituency was divided into the Airoli constituency and the Belapur Constituency, there were speculations that Congress will assert it’s right on one of these. The same has now been endorsed by Navi Mumbai Congress Chief Namdeo Bhagat who says that the Congress will fight assembly elections from one of the two constituencies. Ever since the delimitation and Belapur constituency was divided into the Airoli constituency and the Belapur Constituency, political experts were expecting Congress to stake claim on one seat sooner than later. And it has happened with Congress District Chief Namdeo Bhagat stating that one seat can be given as per the desire of Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik but the Congress will definitely fight from the other seat. Ever since Namdeo Bhagat was spotted getting cozy in the NCP camp on Ganesh Naik’s birthday, there have been speculations that Ganesh Naik has agreed to Namdeo Bhagat fighting from one of the two assembly seats in order to tackle the Vijay Chougule factor. However, Namdeo Bhagat denies the same and says that his selection as a candidate is the call of the party high command. Namdeo Bhagat’s staking claim one assembly seat in Navi Mumbai is well timed as he has just had a successful session of the Congress Spokesperson training in Navi Mumbai. This is the first time in recent years that a Congress District Chief has brought senior party leaders for back to back sessions in Navi Mumbai and despite the indifferences within the Navi Mumbai Congress, has successfully revived the spirit of the Congress party well before the next assembly elections.
